Our clients love us
I have had the opportunity to work with Elena over the last year. She has helped me both professionally and personally, she made me realized in order to succeed professionally as well as personally I need to work from within.
Elena helped me through my journey to really get closer to who I am and do what I want to do. She helped me gain clarity with some major life decisions and gave me strategies to move forward and implement. Elena is full of positivity and puts you at ease with her presence. Her approach is so subtle and yet so powerful. She is very supportive, lovable, approachable, humble and a true source of inspiration and motivation.
I highly recommend Elena for anyone looking for professional or personal help in order to unleash their full potential. She is simply the best!
Farida Natour
Co-Founder and Design Director at la mesa
I reached out to Elena for career-coaching post COVID-19, so she can help me as I wanted to shift from one domain to the other. She took her time to explain to me the pros and cons of my choices, what my options are, and how to take my first steps in such a competitive market. I feel I needed this kind of professionalism, understanding and support to manage my shift smoothly. Because of my discussions with her, I am now taking courses in certain aspects that are lacking in my skills, I revamped my CV to showcase my transferrable skills, and so much more.

I totally recommend Elena to anyone who needs career guidance in such tough times.

Feargal MacDowell
Director at MedFocus
I reached Elena as I was looking for outstanding guest speakers for our webinar series at Ajman University. Elena answered positively right away and working with her was a real pleasure. She has extended knowledge in talent development and she paid a close attention to the interaction with students and alumni, making a great use of polls, Q&A and giving reading advices afterwards.

We already planned a second talk with her this month!

FAQs
Do you have some questions? Find answers below!
How does the coaching take place? Is there an option for face to face?
Coaching usually takes place via GoToWebinar video platform. You will receive a link to join each session. Face to face is an option – if the schedule allows - if we are in the same city or when I am visiting your city for business.
How can I test out your services/personality fit before joining?
I host monthly free webinars where I speak on topics of career and personal development, as well as invite guests. You can check it out under Events tab.
Can I buy one coaching sessions, instead of 4 weeks package?
For new clients – a single session is not enough to make an impact. Career development and skills topics require at least 4 sessions (1 per week). For returning clients – you can book a 1 hour session.
Do you work only in UAE?
No, I have clients from all over the world as the sessions take place online. I also travel quite a bit to deliver sessions globally to groups so there is an option for face to face meeting when I am visiting your city on business.
Is there a payment plan for the courses?
Yes, you can pay in 3 increments if needed.
